We're joining forces with the awesome Portland-based Hand-Eye Supply during their month-long L.A. pop-up for an evening of open-mic style creative proliferation. Sign up on arrival for 3 minutes of designer fame and your opportunity to share what you're working on with your design community. Or watch the presentations and enjoy a beautiful late-summer evening in the courtyard with a beer in hand.
Have some new material you'd like to test out? Perhaps you've hit the wall on the latest project in the studio or workshop and need some feedback. Maybe you've just made a groundbreaking new discovery, or unearthed new technology you'd like to share? Or, maybe you're just damn proud of the quality and commitment you put into your latest round of work. Whatever lights your fire, we wanna hear about it! Pitch us your ideas then sit back and soak in your peers' sweet creativity.
Hardcopy sketches, prototypes and thoughtful feedback are encouraged. This is Show and Tell with a critical eye!
